I disagree with the suggested merge. Most of the interesting things in Knowledgeware's history took place before the Sterling acquisition.--RichardVeryard 17:29, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
I also disagree with the suggested merge. There was a lot of very interesting history of Knowledgeware before the Sterling acquisition, even back to the days of Database Design in Ann Arbor merging with Tarkenton Software in Atlanta to form Knowledgeware.
The action against Tarkenton et al is a minor footnote in the history of Knowledgeware. Has this action been concluded? In any case, I don't personally think the history of companies should be written purely in terms of the flaws of their executives. Knowledgeware employed some great people and produced some great products. SEC action against Tarkenton (together with its eventual outcome) should probably belong on the Tarkenton page rather than the Knowledgeware page. --RichardVeryard 10:05, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
I worked with KnowledgeWare as an advertising contractor from the Database Design days in Ann Arbor through the IPO of KnowledgeWare, interviewing their customers for case studies and writign them up. Many of their customers were Fortune 500 companiesώ, government offices, and utilities, buying KnowledgeWare's set of four tools for the planning, analysis, design, and construction of software for creating enterprise level systems. Most customers I interviewed seemed to view the tools very favorably. I remember one major auto manufacturer buying 900 sets of the tools for their army of IT analysts and developers. These computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tools were a great concept if you were building or maintaining large systems in COBOL and wanted rigorous documentation and consistency in your code.
